With only five rounds in the Major League Baseball Draft this year, much fewer high school players are expected to be chosen in the early rounds compared to previous season, especially pitchers.

That being said, more high school pitchers will be chosen in this year's draft than any other position, with the bulk of those players being right-handed pitchers.

With only two days to go before the 2020 MLB Draft, here's a look at our final installment — pitchers. Previously, we've looked at corner infielders, middle infielders, outfielders and catchers.
Graphic by Ryan Escobar
Nick Bitsko, Central Bucks East (Doylestown, Pa.)
Scouts don't know a whole lot about Bitsko since he reclassified from the Class of 2021 and he didn't take the field during the 2020 spring. Thus he only played two seasons of high school baseball. Nevertheless, scouts don't need to know much when a pitcher is hitting 96 mph on his fastball. Bitsko, at 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds, also has the size to add more speed. He also has a solid enough curve and change to be considered the top right-handed prep prospect in the draft. Projection: Top 15 picks.

Jared Kelley, Refugio (Texas)
If not for Bitsko, Kelley would be the top prospect. The National Gatorade Player of the Year, Kelley did not allow a hit in three appearances, including a complete-game no-hitter. Kelley's fastball has hit 99 mph this spring and he also has a change that's considered a plus second pitch. Projection: Top 20 picks.

Mick Abel, Jesuit (Portland, Ore.)
Abel has a 94 mph fastball, but the slider is his premium pitch, which Baseball America ranks as the best in the 2020 draft. The Gatorade State Player of the Year in Oregon had an 18-3 career record with 213 career strikeouts. Projection: End of first round.

Jared Jones, La Mirada (Calif.)
Jones has command of an assortment of pitches and is also a possible everyday player based on his ability on offense. Jones is a possible second-round selection, but his signability is in question, considering he has committed to play at Texas — one of the top baseball programs in the nation. Projection: Second round.

Carson Montgomery, Windermere (Fla.)
Another pitcher who has a mid-90s fastball to go along with a plus change. Montgomery also has a curve in his repertoire making him a solid three-pitch candidate. Projection: Second round.

Justin Lange, Llano (Texas)
Lange is a new name among the top pitching prospects thanks to a spring season in which his fastball hit 99 mph. That type of velocity would normally make Lange a first-round prospect, but with a shortened spring, scouts appear willing to wait until the second round. Projection: Second round.

Nolan McLean, Garner Magnet (Garner, N.C.)
McLean is a two-way prospect after belting nine home runs and batting .373 as a junior to go along with 53 strikeouts in 28 innings pitched. A two-sport athlete, McLean also had 6,809 yards passing as a quarterback. McLean can hit 94 mph on his fastball. Projection: Third round.

Cam Brown, Flower Mound (Texas)
Brown had a very strong summer last year, which pushed him up the ranks of the top pitching prospects in the country. His fastball sits in the mid-90s and he has good command of a curve ball and change-up, however he is likely a third- or fourth-round selection. Projection: Third round.

Alex Santos, Mt. St. Michael Academy (Bronx, N.Y.)
Santos hits about 93 mph on his fastball, but scouts project Santos to add speed to the pitch as he adds strength at the next level. He also has a solid change-up and curve and appears to have plenty of potential. Projection: Fourth round.

Dax Fulton, Mustang (Okla.)
The only left-hander on the list, Fulton has a 96 mph fastball and he is one of the few lefties expected to be drafted during the five-round selection process. Fulton is ranked as a first-round prospect by some mock drafts, but he more than likely falls toward the end. Projection: Fifth round.
High School baseball: St. Mary Prep moves to No. 2 in OFFICIAL Top 25 as losses shuffle rankings - OFFICIAL
High School baseball: St. Mary Prep moves to No. 2 in MaxPreps Top 25 as losses shuffle rankings
Multiple losses by Top 10 teams and continued undefeated play by St. Mary Prep (Orchard Lake, Mich.) and Friendswood (Texas) resulted in a huge shakeup in this week's MaxPreps Top 25 high school baseball rankings.

Previous No. 2 Jesuit (Tampa, Fla.), No. 3 Madison Central (Madison, Miss.), and No. 4 Stoneman Douglas (Parkland, Fla.) all lost last week with No. 5 IMG Academy getting the win over Jesuit. No. 6 Barbe also won while previous No. 10 Calvary Christian Academy lost and was dropped from the rankings.

Meanwhile, St. Mary Prep continued to rack up impressive win after impressive win, extending its win streak to 39 and season mark to 19-0. Friendswood also won a pair of games to move to  23-0. Since IMG Academy has ended its season, St. Mary Prep and Friendswood jump ahead of IMG Academy and Barbe. IMG Academy can still move up with losses by Buford, St. Mary Prep and Friendswood.

Six new teams enter the rankings this week. They include Utah's best Pleasant Grove, Columbus North, the top team in Indiana and Rocky Mountain, the top team in Idaho. Parkview Baptist has the best overall record in Louisiana, and Buchanan, the top team in Central California. Roff, a small school in Oklahoma, joins at No. 25. While Roff comes in No. 2 in the MaxPreps computer state rankings, it actually has a win over the No. 1 team, Deer Creek (Edmond).

Dropped out: Calvary Christian Academy (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.), Seymour (Tenn.), Fort Zumwalt West (O'Fallon, Mo.), Hewitt-Trussville (Trussville, Ala.), Trinity (Louisville, Ky.), Vero Beach (Vero Beach, Fla.).

Game of the Week: IMG Academy 4, Jesuit 2. In a game that could determine the top team in Florida, IMG Academy edged Jesuit thanks to three RBI by Drake Varnado. IMG Academy does not play in the postseason while Jesuit begins postseason play this week in defense of its state championship from 2019.

Player of the Week: Ike Irish, St. Mary Prep. Irish hit three home runs last week to help the Eaglets move up to the No. 2 spot in the rankings.

Recruit Watch: Cooper Kinney, Baylor. One of the top infielder prospects in the nation, Kinney had a big week for the Red Raiders with four doubles and three home runs.

Game to Watch: Baylor vs. Farragut. The Red Raiders and Admirals battle for the top spot in Tennessee this weekend. The two teams play in different divisions in the state playoffs and won't be able to determine state supremacy in the postseason. Baylor is coming off a disappointing loss to Parkview (Lilburn, Ga.), but stays in the rankings due to its matchup with No. 8 Farragut and what a possible win over the Admirals might mean with regards to the rankings.

Streaks: St. Mary Prep (Orchard Lake, Mich.) moved past Webster (Wis.) for the longest active win streak in the nation at 39. The Eaglets won 20 in a row to finish the 2019 season, did not play in 2020, and have won 19 in a row to start the 2021 season. Webster has a 37-game active win streak.

MLB Draft: Top 5 high school outfield prospects - OFFICIAL
MLB Draft: Top 5 high school outfield prospects
Video: 10 Extreme high schools via Google Earth
See these campuses that run north to south and east to west.

The coronavirus cut short the 2020 high school baseball season and it's also going to cut short this year's Major League Baseball Draft. But there's no question outfield is the deepest position among prep baseball players in 2020.

Of the top six high school players listed on the mock draft by Mike Axisa of CBS Sports, four were outfielders, including the top three players. Don't be surprised if a high school outfielder is the first prep player chosen, the only question is which prep outfielder will it be?

Scheduled for June 10-11, the usual 40-round selection process will last just five rounds this year, according to Major League Baseball. The first round will be held on June 10 with the final four rounds on June 11.

Since there will be far fewer draft selections this year, MaxPreps is providing a truncated look at the top high school selections for the MLB Draft. Instead of the usual Top 10, MaxPreps looks at the Top 5 players at six different positions, continuing with outfielders after starting with corner infielders on Monday.
Graphic by Ryan Escobar
Zac Veen, Spruce Creek (Port Orange, Fla.)
Veen had moved up to the No. 1 prospect in the country by Perfect Game by the time the season ended in March. He was batting .452 with three home runs and had led Spruce Creek to a 9-0 record. He has a strong enough arm to stick in right field. Veen could be the top high school player chosen. Projection: Top five pick.

Robert Hassell, Independence (Thompson's Station, Tenn.)
If Veen isn't the top prep outfielder chosen, then Hassell likely will be. He can hit for power and average. As a junior, Hassell batted .423 with 14 home runs and was named Gatorade State Player of the Year. Scouts see Hassell as a possible center fielder at the next level. Projection: Top 15 pick.

Austin Hendrick, West Allegheny (Imperial, Pa.)
Hendrick is seen as having plenty of potential to hit for power and for average. He's done well in those departments during travel baseball, however he hit .327 with two home runs last year. He did not get the chance to take the field this spring. Some scouts have Hendrick listed as the top outfield prospect in the Class of 2020. Others see him going near the middle or end of the first round. Projection: End of first round.

Pete Crow-Armstrong, Harvard-Westlake (Studio City, Calif.)
At one time, Crow-Armstrong was ranked as the No. 1 player in the Class of 2020 by Perfect Game. He's still ranked among the top players in the class and he's still seen as a potential first-round selection. Scouts see Crow-Armstrong as a potential five-tool player. He hit .395 as a junior with three home runs and he is seen as a strong defensive center fielder. Projection: Late first round, early second round.

Dylan Crews, Lake Mary (Lake Mary, Fla.)
Although Crews hasn't shown much power in high school competition, he is seen as a disciplined hitter who can spray the ball to all fields. He batted .389 as a junior and was also strong defensively. Will likely play right field at the next level. Projection: early second round.
2020-21 OFFICIAL Sophomore All-America Team: D.J. Wagner headlines high school basketball's best from the Class of 2023 - OFFICIAL
2020-21 MaxPreps Sophomore All-America Team: D.J. Wagner headlines high school basketball's best from the Class of 2023
Our look at high school basketball's best from the 2020-21 season continues with the MaxPreps Sophomore All-America Team, highlighted by National Sophomore of the Year D.J. Wagner of Camden (N.J.).

Wagner, a 6-foot-3 guard regarded as the No. 1 prospect in the Class of 2023 by 247Sports, averaged 22.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game this season for Camden, which finished No. 9 in the MaxPreps Top 25. The Panthers have amassed a record of 42-1 in his two years with the program.

The son and grandson of former NBA players, Wagner joins a list of past winners that includes R.J. Barrett, Jayson Tatum and Andrew Wiggins. See the full list of past MaxPreps Juniors of the Year below.

North Carolina high school football: Schedule, scores for NCHSAA state championship games
The North Carolina High School Athletic Association will host eight football state championship games featuring 10 undefeated teams beginning Thursday at the University of North Carolina and North Carolina State University.

Four title games — 1A, 2AA, 3A, 4AA — will be hosted at North Carolina State's Finley Stadium starting Thursday with the 2AA contest between Salisbury (8-2) and St. Pauls (8-0). It concludes Saturday with the 4AA tilt between Rolesville (9-0) and the state's No. 1 ranked team, Zebulon B. Vance (9-1).

The other four championship games — 1AA, 2A, 3AA, 4A — will be played at North Carolina's Kenan Stadium, starting Thursday with the 3AA contest between a pair of 10-0 squads, Mount Tabor and Cleveland. Two Saturday games finish off the championships, concluding with the 2A game between Mountain Heritage (7-1) and Reidsville (9-0).

In all, the 16 teams have combined for records of 140 wins and just eight defeats. All eight games with be broadcast on the NFHS Network.

The NCHSAA was one of 15 states to bypass traditional fall football due to the pandemic. Of the 11 states that played football in the spring, only three opted for playoffs and to crown state champions. Virginia did so last week and North Carolina and Rhode Island wrap up football championships for the 2020-21 season this week.

Among the many standouts in the championship games is Havelock senior running back Kamarro Edmonds, a 5-foot-11, 227 pound senior who has rushed for 916 yards and 15 touchdowns in eight games. He's ranked the No. 16 senior in the state by 247Sports and headed to North Carolina.

Also a basketball star who averaged over 30 points per game this year, Reidsville senior wide receiver Breon Pass is ranked the state No. 28 senior recruit overall after catching 83 passes for more than 1,400 yards and 27 touchdowns in his career heading into this season.
